I began by applying L’oreals Truematch Foundation in D/W5 Gold Sand, I usually apply with a foundation brush and blend out with a flat Kabuki or Stipler but as I was pressed for time I went straight in with the Kabuki. I then took a light shade from Pixi’s neutralising kit and brushed it down the centre of the nose and under the eyes just to brighten and slightly contour. I sealed it in by patting Givenchy’s Loose Powder Prism Libre in Sweet Caramel, powders absorb excess product and keep the foundation matt allowing it to last longer.
I used Topshops Glow Pot in Shade Gleam to highlight under the brow with a Pencil Brush. Then I put Urban Decay’s Tainted eyeshadow shade all over the eyelid and added shade Deeper into the crease of the eye making the eyes bigger and more defined. I took a gel liner with a eyeliner brush and applied it along the lash line. I didn’t go over it with a liquid liner as I wanted to keep it as natural as possible. I finished the eyes with 2 layers of Clinique’s black Mascara.
I applied Givenchys lip liner in shade no.1 and then coloured in the lip with Lancome’s colour fever shine in 306. These lipsticks are really moisturising and have a glossy finish, not too shiny but just a little dewy to give you that fresh fuller lip.
Then I took my Large Angled Contour Brush and applied M.A.C’s Bronzing Powder in limited edition shade Solar Riche in the hollows of the cheeks to contour. I applied Benefits Coralista above the hollow on the cheek bone and then a touch of Bobbi Browns Shimmer Brick just above the Cheekbone to highlight and add another dimension. This is great to do on rounder faces as it gives you a more chiselled look.
Layans fresh and dewy look is complete 🙂
